This directory went through several transformations (you still can see the "portfolio" ruins), but at the present moment (2002) it's about the "theory" of theatre (I hope it'll stay this way). I have it in order to free my instructional pages from everything the students do not have to study for exams, but something I need for my own examinations. There are three (at least) other directories with the same genjeral purpose: The Book of Spectator, Virtual Theatre and Research (on hold). I still don't know how to mark the levels of texts (signs, colors?)
Write to Theatre UAF and we will send you a CD about our program!
Anatoly Antohin Theatre Yahoo (new window, use the links). The good news: the robots do the indexication and I do not have to submit pages to the search engines! Bad news -- they spider ALL pages, even the ones I am not done with.
Four levels = four parts on each my webpage!
First -- the easiest. Last -- most difficult.

Notes and comments
new: 2003 *
If you didn't find something you are looking for on my pages, go Amazon (our recommendations).
Anatoly, did you lose your mind? This Amazon is everywhere on your pages!
A: Amazon proved to be really smart. I removed all other commercial links from my pages, because Amazon offers a lot of usefull toos for webmaster. I don't have to worry about bibliography, for example, anymore -- I list the Amazon references and, if you can't find the info you are looking for on my pages, go there and get what you need.
2005 updates: Small Chekhov Fall * "Four Farces & One Funeral" -- Chekhov.05 Chekhov's one-acts are updated -- The Bear, The Proposal (1st act -- Oh, Love!), Wedding, Tobacco (Act II -- Ah, Marriage!), but I'm still working on the "funeral" (Last Day of Anton Chekhov). mini-chekhov I am teaching DramLit -- groups.yahoo.com/group/dramlit (subscribe) and see THR215 for subjects, topics, titles.
Spring 2006 -- Waiting for Godot, Beckett -- new pages ( see shows )
* After so many years of webbing I cannot change the nature of my webpages -- they are what they were from the start; notes, thoughts, points I make for myself for classes and productions. Do they have an independent existence? Maybe, somewhere in the future...
My experience as a webmaster taught me several lessons; one of them that I have to have FAQ pages to save time for myself and for you. Many questions are the same. "Who are you?" Where are you from?" "What do you teach next semester?" "How can I apply to your school?"
The best is to make the pages with the answers or/and place the links. This directory is about Theatre Theory (and myself as teacher and director).
I hope all the pages I placed in CONTENTS can answer most of your questions. About lectures and workshops I conduct, how to contact me, where I am through 2001 and so on (not really).
Use the "search site" function (on the right) and "what's new" (which gives you the updated and new pages). In general FAQ pages are to tell you what I do not have....
Again, this is THEORY directory (I try to separate my notes that are not for classes, although you could see some pages I use for Acting, Directing, Drama courses).
Sorry, I do not have theory egroup (list), but you are welcome to subscribe to Mailing List to have updates (the WWWilde Forum, which was supposed to be on everything postmodern, but I have no time for it). See the right table again!
NB. I hate FAQ pages -- and do not update them. Maybe I should collect all FAQ pages in one htmlgear and be done with it. [I guess I am interested in FAQ, since it's not for me to use.] This is webmaster's job and already spend too much time as a webmaster. As they were used to say -- navigate at your own risk!
It's getting difficult to travel -- the sign of aging. I noticed that often after sending proposals and getting papers accepted, I cancel the trip. To travel that far (and expences) for twenty minutes, when you can't say much... You have to give up a lot of hours (days)...

Method & Biomechanics: From Gestalt perspective body is a personification of inner life; it is materialized contact-boundary between inner world and environment. Body and its gestures are what another person can experience. We can look at body experience as a key to awareness of feelings, needs, and wishes. Idea of wholeness of spiritual and physical dimensions were presented in actors masterpiece school of Stanislavsky and M. Chekhov.
